Hi -
I am trying to create a public Sub that will be able to access controls on different forms. I get a type mismatch when I try to run it. The control is a label in a control array.

See below...

(This is my modual)
Public Sub LoadNumbers(ByRef activeControl As Control)
Dim I As Long
  For I = 1 To 7
  Dim newControl As Control
    Load activeControl .lblArrPlaceHolder(I)
  Set newControl = activeControl .lblArrPlaceHolder(I)
    With activeControl .lblArrPlaceHolder(I)
      .Width = 855
      .Height = 615
      .FontBold = True
      .FontSize = 25
      .Alignment = 2
      .BackStyle = 0
      .BorderStyle = 0
      .Top = 6000
      .ZOrder 0
      Dim b As Integer
      b = I + 2
     .Left = 1600 * I
     .Caption = I
     .Visible = True
    End With
  Next

(On the form)
Private Sub cmdPickNumbers_Click()
LoadNumbers (frm649.lblArrPlaceHolder(0))
End Sub

Given a control array called Text1

Usage: passit Text1
Public Sub passit(carr As Variant)
MsgBox carr(0)
MsgBox carr(1)
End Sub

Open in new window
